The Nationals dropped a game in Pittsburgh after pounding the Pirates on Monday. They came right back and won another blowout, 11–1, on Wednesday and have a chance to make it three out of four on Thursday.
Trae Turner and Adam Eaton had two more hits apiece at the top of the lineup. Those two are scorching hot and Anthony Rendon is only hitting .323 immediately after them. Patrick Corbin went eight shutout innings in the win, which has the bullpen nicely setup for the weekend.
That bullpen is the only real issue Washington has. The acquisition to get Daniel Hudson at the break was a shrewd one. Unlike recent years, the vibe around the club is all so good these days. And it could just be World Series-bound in its first year without Bryce Harper.
The Cubs got their chance to beat up on Pittsburgh over the weekend. They’ve been beating up on the Giants this week with a chance to sweep a three-game series on Thursday.
They’ll stay right at home for this series, beginning on Friday, before hitting the road to open a series in New York, against the Mets, on Tuesday. That will be an opportunity for Washington to gain one of two potential Wild Card contenders.
The Cubs haven’t seen Anibal Sanchez yet this season but he’s awfully tough on right-handed hitters, which leads me to believe he could be in for a good start in this spot. Lefties get him for a .819 OPS against, while righties are down at .661.
